See the samples of handmade paper in the photo above? I received them along with a nice note from a friend, Nicole,who lives in Ethiopia.
Nicole recently visited Chiang Mai, Thailand and found this unique paper there. As a fellow papercrafter, she knew that I would be thrilled with this gift. The handmade paper??? It's made from elephant poo ;o) - seems Chiang Mai is the location of an elephant sanctuary. Did I mention that Nicole has an unusual sense of humor?? That's one reason why she's my friend.
Oh, the postage stamp carries on with the elephant theme......
I must admit that this isn't the first time I've received recycled poo as a gift. A year or two ago a friend visited the Virgin Islands and brought me a souvenir......a bookmark made from recycled donkey poo. Just in case you would like more information on recycled poo products, take a look here.
What about you???? Did you get something interesting in the mail today?
